Hm.  Would that work?  I though that (basically) Emacs just put the
HELLO file in a window, and then the redisplay engine starts churning
and churning while the OS is loading all the fonts.

To clear the "please wait..." message you'd have to have a hook that's
run after redisplay is "finished", if that is even a possible concept.
